The city of Chernivtsi contains many of Ukraine's most impressive sights and is considered one of the country's centres of education and culture. Chernivtsi has even been nicknamed "Little Vienna" for its combination of Baroque, Neoclassical, and Hungarian architecture.
You will see the majority of Chernivtsi's historic attractions in the old town and a large pedestrianised zone means it is easy to walk around. Chernivtsi (Cernauti in Romanian) makes a perfect day trip from the Radisson Blu Resort, Bukovel, located two and a half hours away in Ukraine's Carpathian Mountains.

What to see in Chernivtsi
The Chernivtsi Univeristy - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Chernivsti's most beautiful building - should top guests itinerary when visiting the city. Designed by the Czech architect Josef Hlavka, the Chernivtsi University buildings were originally the home of the Archbishops of Bukovnia and Dalmatia. Take a look at the coloured tiled roof; the designs mimic the traditional folk art and embroidery of Ukraine. In the grounds, the Botanic Gardens provide a natural setting well worth exploring.
Chernivtsi is also known for its museums, including the Museum of Local Lore, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Folk Architecture and Way of Life. You can also catch a performance at the Chernivtsi Puppet Theatre, renowned throughout Ukraine and particularly popular with children.
